Discussion and questions related to the course EFI Wiring Fundamentals
Anyone recommend where to buy TXL wire in Australia?
only places I have found so far have minimum order of 500m per wire!
This seems to be the best fit for you, 10m rolls - http://www.rapidcables.com.au/thin-wall-cross-linked-xlpe-txl-aex
Other options would be directly approaching a specialist auto' or industrial wiring shop, or race team for the sizes, colours and quantities you need, and/or getting together with others in, for example, a car club to do a bulk buy?
Might be a new business venture for Zac ;-D
Hah, my plate is pretty full with getting these courses sorted!
http://www.alphawire.com/ - some specialist wiring, including stuff rated to 300C
https://uk.farnell.com/ - not as good a range as RS, but used to be a fair bit cheaper.
It has probably been mentioned, but don't disregard Repco, Jaycar, or the other local retailers - they carry some odd stuff on occasion that might just do the job.
Add http://www.motorsport-connectors to the list - they make an alternative to the Deutsch Autosport conectors with thier 8STA / 8TA series of motorsport focussed, MIL-DTL-39899 based round barrel connectors with up to 128 way 22d connectors in a 24 sized shell and many different configs on pin qty and size. And the nice thing is, they are available through RS Compnents.
Can i make a suggestion.
It would be awesome if we could get the original list edited with the country (locations) of eash shop linked there. I a from the UK and it seems we are seriously low on good sellers here unless i am missing something.
The UK has a massive Motorsport industry, if you can't find a direct supplier, try some of the motorsport electronics specialists, or even larger teams, for recommendations?
Come to think on it, RCE used to have pages of various trade suppliers in the back of their issues - a much missed feature but, if you have access to an old copy, that may be a place to look.
Nice EU-based (Germany) source for DT/DTM/DTP connectors, also in pre-wired versions, ideal for small projects.
Nicely organized with mating parts and compatible pins.
More parts also available
The only thing I didn't find is some budget-friendly solution for crimping closed-barrel DT pins.
Is there a place to get non mil spec shielded cable? Im looking to gather some supplies to build my harness and I have found TXL wire from Ballenger Motorsports but I can't seem to find any TXL shielded wire. I know prowire has shielded but they only have mil spec (Tefzel).
